Italy: Perugia give no chance to Monza, Verona make Piacenza’s dream team stumble already on first match, Cisterna stun Milano. Trento ok

4 min read

The players of Sir Safety Susa Perugia gave a beautiful gift to their head coach showing themselves powerful after Anastasi’s return to SuperLega after 17 years, as they celebrated a confident win.
In front of their own audience, the renewed side overcame Vero Volley Monza in just three sets and without major problems (25:19, 25:21, 25:18). The winners, with the Cuban-Polish Wilfredo León on the bench, imposed their own pace of play against a rival who lacked the starting setter Fernando Kreling ’Cachopa’. In fact, the Brazilian will be out for four months due a knee injury. The Luxembourgish Kamil Rychlicki, who now competes as an Italian player, scored 16 points including 4 aces for Perugia, while Massimo Colaci made 86% reception (14 digs, 57% perfect).
The German, Georg Grozer, scored 12 for Monza and Thomas Beretta had 4 blocks.

The return to their home court after more than four months of waiting was sweet for Itas Trentino. In fact, the players around coach Angelo Lorenzetti gave their fans the first satisfaction of the new season, beating the newcomers Emma Villas Aubay Siena 3-1 (25:16, 25:21, 23:25, 25:17) in their first match of the 2022/23 SuperLega.
It wasn’t an easy match for the hosts against a very combative team. The Bulgarian veteran Matey Kaziyski led the home side’s scorer with 26 points, including 5 aces, Alessandro Michieletto also contributed with 22 points including 4 winning blocks, while Gabriele Laurenzano had 79% reception (29 digs, 34% perfect). The Dutchman Maarten van Garderen scored 17 points for Siena.

The second surprise of the first round of Superlega, apart from Padova’s triumph over Modena, in one of the two advances of Round 1, was the one Top Volley Cisterna made on the field of Allianz Milano. Fabio Soli’s side not only imposed itself on the field of a favored rival, but even did so with a 3-0 (22:25, 19:25, 23:25)! The Croatian duo Sedlaček – Djirlić were decisive in Cisterna’s win, scoring both 16 points, while the Frenchman Jean Patry, put down the exact number of points on the losing side.

In the last match of the day we saw the third upset of the opening round, probably the biggest of all! WithU Verona conquered Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza’s PalaBanca after the exciting tie-break (20:25, 25:23, 25:23, 20:25, 22:24) of a very hot match. It was the kind of SuperLega debut of a highly reinforced Piacenza that their fans hadn’t hoped for.
In the fifth set, Verona, who came back from 1-2 down in sets, canceled three match points of the rivals before converting the fourth match point of their own.
The Russian Maksim Sapozhkov of Verona, as well as the Cuban-Brazilian Yoandy Leal, and Yuri Romanò of Piacenza, shared the top scorer of the match award with 25 points each. The Malian prospect Noumory Keita served 4 aces for Verona.
